Refresh, Reimagine and Reconnect at Kiah Ridge

Special Offers and Pricing

‘Kiah Ridge’, your Baptist Association’s Conference and Retreat venue would like to extend an invitation to you and your church. We realise that we are in a tough season and would like to offer you some support to help refresh you and your family, provide a space where you and your leadership can reimagine church post Covid and give you an opportunity to reconnect with your community.

With all this pandemic… Is it worth getting away together?

Well, we think so. And not just because we have big rolls of toilet paper and copious amounts of hand soap and sanitiser. It’s also not because we think it’s important for people to doff their pyjamas and Ugg boots and get out of their house.

Whilst those things are true, why we really believe it’s worth getting away together are the same reasons we had before the corona virus was a thing. It’s about supporting churches and ministry organisations to be healthy – relationally healthy.

Coming away together is an opportunity to build new relationships with each other, strengthen existing friendships and networks and overall create stronger and healthier communities. In the context of the local church it’s the opportunity to do all of this connecting with Jesus as individuals and a community; and exploring what it means to Be the Church together.

If you need to be convinced by statistics, then consider a study from a few years back:

  • 1 in 10 make a first faith decision at a camp or conference;
  • 1 in 5 make a re-commitment at a camp or conference;
  • 58% say that camps are important for strengthening their faith;
  • 15 – 29 year olds, a Christian Camp is among the top 5 activities that contribute to coming to faith;
  • 37% said that camps help by giving them time away from general busyness to focus on their relationship with God;
  • 39% said that camps help to foster and build relationships with others in Church.

Kiah Ridge is a CovidSafe registered business, operating within government directives, and also a NARTA Accredited Venue (National Accommodation, Recreation, and Tourism Accreditation Program).
